Education & Cultural-Translation
Our mission is to promote education of the universal wisdom principles of Bhakti and the Vedas. Our aim is to achieve an effective, easy-to-understand, â€˜cultural-translationâ€™ of those principles for the practical and tangible benefit of society at large. This involves the creation of courses, lectures, and written material that can be delivered via various media, especially the internet. Our target audience is the general public. Another aim is to provide support, education and training to devotees on how to use our material to better present themselves and the philosophy to the modern world. We are especially interested in working with young devotees who are looking for effective ways of making the philosophy accessible and attractive to their peers. We are working closely with the Florida Vedic College, which is accredited by the state of Florida as a religious educational institution, to offer devotees and the public a chance to study the Vedic arts, philosophy and science. The college offers recognised degree programmes in subjects such as Vaishnava studies, Ayurveda, Jyotish, Vaastu, Servant-led Leadership, and Sustainable Business. In support of the above we are also working with the Cranmore Foundation, a non-profit educational charitable trust registered in England & Wales, to promote the study of the universal principles found in all wisdom traditions and which are also found in the Vedas. The foundation is working with mainstream universities, corporations and policy makers to educate on how universal wisdom principles can help create a more sustainable vital society. Lastly, our hope to contribute to the development of an active, valued and empowered lay organisation. This means helping our young people get the education they need to live successfully â€˜in the world, but not be of itâ€™.
